and thank you for joining our to broadcasting to live from the heart of moscow i'm karen tara well a series of terror attacks have struck syria's largest city around forty people are reportedly dead and over one hundred injured and what are thought to have been suicide car blasts targeting the military party's middle east correspondent paula slayer has details. syrian state television is reporting that this is the work of terrorists and that dozens of people have been killed many of them belonging to the syrian regime now it comes amid intensified fighting between government forces and rebel fighters in the search and we are understanding that the explosions were a few minutes apart they happened near the city's largest squares at least one massive crater has remained in the ground and that the facade of several two
buildings nearby were completely ripped apart according to eyewitnesses there the explosions were followed immediately by intensified gun battles and clashes we are also hearing that by all accounts it seems as if the explosions were caused by called bombs now this is not getting verified but it does suggest that this is the work of suicide bombers there isn't a burmese newspaper that is reporting that the syrian president bashar assad is in the city of aleppo where he is visiting and seeing firsthand what the battles there have been bringing about and that is also ordered at least some thirty thousand troops to be deployed it is unusual it certainly is rare that they have been suicide bombings in the city of aleppo and there was a bombing back in february in which twenty eight people were killed but most of you know all the suicide bomb bombings have been concentrated in the capital city of damascus and over the past few days and certainly over the past few weeks there has
been an intensified number of car bombs exploding where now the rebels have come forward and came for sponsibility for those car bombings so far no one has tempers sponsibility for this particular attack but it certainly does have all the fingerprints of the rebel car bombing suicide attacks there was a call last week by rebel fighters in which they say that they would intensify the fighting in aleppo they said that they were going to end the battle there it comes amid reports of a receiving that qatar has same. nearly two hundred million dollars to the free syrian army so certainly the scene seems to be said for fighting to intensify certainly in the near future and looking now in the city of aleppo let's discuss the latest spike in terror attacks in syria with eric dinallo who is the founder and director of the french center for intelligence studies thank you so much mr to nasa for joining r.t. today that no one has yet admitted these attacks although last week's damascus blas
were acknowledged very quickly do you think there might be different forces in action here. though i think it is always the same salafist group we've for instance who are. more and more we see you know that the user class you call terrorists techniques because of the hour they want to put some more pressure on the syrian regime now there is an opinion of that terrorists might have struck aleppo to get back at its citizens for failing to support the rebels think there's any ground to that well of course we have a lot of proves that the foreign countries i mean mostly when you're a black actor and of called the states are so involved in terrorist because we see a slow change in the western position about syria and know the u.s. and the u.k. maybe you think that because the regime is still in play he said they think he's going to last for long so they won the lottery and so it would be to just to boost really do need the support of the of the set of these groups against bashar majesty
yesterday syria's foreign minister accused the u.s. france and their arab allies of backing terrorism in syria at the u.n. while at the same time gathering together countries who blame all the violence on president assad well the growing list of the dead lead to them changing the tone. i'm afraid you know we will out we still have a lot of people more because i think for this i'm going to stop all mine and we the fact that we have more and more attacks in aleppo in damascus which represent fifty person. the population of the sign that tourists are absolute seem unable to take control of this stone and we have to see that most cleaned go as well as in damascus the tama quiet and all the servants which have been held by the rebuild some weeks ago on their own that the army controlled so the fact that they do suicide bomb beings for me is the proof that they are not able to take control of this stuff and now do you expect the course of conflict to change in any way
following these latest attacks well i think the conflict is going to last for long involved in the treaty but it is really no civil war but all sides show that the regime army strongman sooner or later they will take control again of most of the country you know we some places the jewish and will be probably similar of the one we know in libya and means we will see more and more terrorist attack and probably we are going to see those from all on the border these rebels from whom we last for long would do to foreign support now if these attacks continue how should these government forces respond to you think well it's difficult to be we know that even if the best shot regime isn't depression we know that these forces are democratic forces that don't know we know that they're very very violently but anyway i think sooner or later they will in most of the country in the they will take control
again of the territory except on some points as i told you because we know that some rebel stronghold on the border very very very so it was from france founder and director of the french center for intelligence studies character now thank you thank you now russia's foreign minister has clarify the country's position on ways to solve the syrian conflict and has talked about what's instigating it discover what's told major. paper details of his interview art are. more middle east countries could fall into the hands of terrorists who are now active in syria those fears have been voiced by the head of russia's security service the f.s.b. along with other possible shock waves that might as well me from the conflict here's our to tell barton. the head of russia's federal security service alexander bought recalled was talking about his concerns not just about sectarian violence in
the middle east not about the humanitarian crisis there but about his fear of the risk of the rise of islamic terror groups specifically al qaeda in the region there are specific fears about what al qaeda and terrorist groups may be trying to do in the region a that they may be trying to gain higher positions within the new government structures there and b. that they may find it easier to try and get their hands on weapons of mass destruction which would create a very dangerous situation indeed specific to russia he talked about the reported sightings of north caucasus terrorists operating in the region and gaining valuable experience there and he talked about a new strategy that over three thousand stabs being employed lots of little attacks on mr bought a cop says that the e.u. wildfires that have caused such problems recently may have been started by
terrorists citing the websites encouraging terrorists to try and cause as much damage as possible by doing things like lighting fires which require very little imports and those were the messages from the f.s.b. heads about the danger of the growth of terrorism in the restive middle east amid the unrest elsewhere in the middle east a former journalist for c.n.n. claims crane is paying the network to get the coverage it means amber lyon says her documentary depicting atrocities in the gulf kingdom which one perceived as towards was censored by the channel and never shown on c.n.n. international amber explained what happened. brain is paying c.n.n. to create content that shows bahrain in a favorable light even though c.n.n. says this content you know is editorially independent it doesn't see the effect that what we've seen that with this documentary not airing and also with the
constant struggle i had at c.n.n. to get coverage accurate bahrain coverage of the human rights abuses on air while i was there what c.n.n. is doing is they're essentially creating what some people have termed infomercials for dictators there's violates every principle of journalistic ethics because we're supposed to be watchdogs on these governments we're not supposed to allow them to be paying customers as journalists we were able to sneak into some of the villages we were able to kind of dodge our minders and sneak into some of the villages and actually see these atrocities patients who had run out of the hospitals that were shot up with birdshot ambulance drivers who were beaten and as we were heading back to these villages we were violently detained by security forces and buffering about twenty masked men with machine guns who then try to erase all the video that they found and luckily my female producer and i were able to hide some disks in our broads and we were able to actually get out of the country with this content so you
can imagine surprise when we got back to the us and this content was airing on c.n.n. and right after that is when the phone calls started coming into the network complaining about me and trying to get my coverage off the air all the while the government's crackdown on pro-democracy protesters is maintaining momentum in the latest incident police move to disperse a funeral procession for a young man in custody after allegedly did not call for medical attention the twenty three year old had spent several months in prison for taking part in the anti-government demonstrations once the protests for equality which erupted last february details are on our website.
julian assange has supporters who bailed him out of a british prison almost two years ago are waiting to find out whether they'll see their money again over two hundred thousand dollars contributed by activists and celebrities has been frozen since the wiki leaks editor sought refuge at ecuador's london embassy three months ago assad has been there ever since despite being granted asylum by the south american country britain's determination not to let him leave is costing taxpayers hefty sum the police stake out at the embassy costs eleven thousand pounds a day but the total bill already topping one million bring you more on that as well as the results of the bail money hearing to take place in london throughout the day . also in britain the opposition leader tries to stand out from the crowd and float a few populist policies but closer inspection shows they're a little more than hot air as our london correspondent explains later. russia's

first patient return to us with a leg length i mean a quest to meet his fifteen centimeters to replace the want to surgery because it's panos to than him we like to say that we need to break their legs in order to fix their head like lengthening surgeries a band in many countries and even the will out there pressure him battell expensive in russia the entire course costs eleven thousand dollars about one tenth of the similar package in the united states financial considerations for one of the reasons that brought this washington state native to western siberia yet his main motive for the surgery had to do with how he fared in others in america average height is one seventy five i was one sixty seven or one sixty eight and so one eight centimeters would have brought me right to average for women height isn't so important girl can be sure it's not a big deal like your guy is like expected to be taller just before the operation

wants more money for its own budget next year brussels votes on what money it thinks it needs this week and that unemployment that swirled to its highest ever since the euro zone began researcher jerome ruth says the numbers speak for themselves. well it's out of the state of the economy is absolutely dire and it actually tells us that what these leaders are trying to do through these meetings in these summits is actually aggravating the situation because they are the measures that are being imposed the radical structural reforms each of these things is actually aggravating the situation by undermining growth by undermining investor confidence and by omission the humanitarian tragedy i mean there is an enormous public outrage right now in spain as there is in greece as there is in portugal and if these people were allowed to decide on their own future they would not choose the path of the u.s. forcing them down right now so what you're seeing is a repetition of what we've seen for the past twenty or thirty years what's happened in the developing world is that international lenders through international is the tuitions actually cancel the sovereignty of nations states in order to ensure full
repayment of the debt i think everything that they're trying to do ultimately is made by financial market panic and what they're not seeing is that you cannot beat the financial markets unless you're willing to take a stand and say that we repudiate part of that and we move on and we set our own priorities and maybe a few years away from a general election but the battle lines are already being drawn labor party leader ed miliband is used a plan out speech to try and sway voters casting himself as the champion of the working class even though he's struggling with a reputation as a career politician from a posh background as last month now reports he showed plenty of politics a few. policies. ed miliband told the labor party conference about his childhood as the son of jewish refugees who fled the nazis and his school days at a london comprehensive which he says enabled him to get on with people from all
walks of life his ultimate goal though to differentiate himself from david cameron and his chancellor george osborne who've been branded from within their own party as to push boys who don't know the price of milk but in reality just how different is miliband his father was a socialist intellectual and his upbringing in highbrow north london circles is worlds away from the lives of most british workers he went to oxford and has never had a proper job outside politics apart from a teaching post at harvard's this speech was full of bluster about the call me the police the wonder of the lympics an ephemeral vision for britain some might say that's because policies are few and far between he said he'll thoughtout the banks make sure companies pay a fair wage and support the national health service but the main announcement of the speech was a promise that if elected labor will instigate
a massive increase in vocational education focusing on the fifty percent of young people who don't go to university a great idea youth unemployment is around twenty percent at the moment but there was no mention of the all important cost and how it would be met miliband has admitted that if the label was in power they'd be making austerity cuts too but he's refused to give any detail until after elected more than anything miliband has tried again to cost himself as a man of the people but many are saying that if he wants the people to listen what he really needs to do is not talk about himself the seemingly endless anecdotes about his childhood. it's probably seriously in detail about the country and it's probably. time now for some more world news for you in brief this hour kurdistan's competent under security forces control following deadly clashes between police and
protesters they were demanding the nationalization of a gold mining venture just partly operated by a canadian company hundreds gathered in front of the government headquarters some tried to storm the building but were forced back with rubber bullets and stun grenades. joint african forces have secured somalia's port city of his smile after nearly a week of battles to reclaim key facilities in the area it's long been a stronghold for al qaida linked islamicist fighting the country's internationally backed government somalia has been riven with political chaos since one thousand nine hundred one but is being supported by the african union and its troops to try and restore order. the georgian dream coalition is planning a clean sweep through parliament and top of its wishlist is getting the country's lame duck leader. to step aside the president's near decade of undisputed rain hit the buffers when the opposition bloc sealed victory in the parliamentary election
from tbilisi here's an excited a ship ski. it felt as if georgia had won the football world cup thousands in the streets celebrated the surprising win by the opposition and despite fears the ruling regime may somehow hamper this triumph soon their worries were swept aside by the president himself. it is evident that the georgian dream coalition has secured a majority this means this parliamentary majority has to form the next government for us at least for me of use of this coalition were fundamentally unacceptable and still remain so. just six months ago an opposition win was deemed impossible the ruling party is rating was at seventy percent and nobody could challenge that confidence saakashvili was that he amended the constitution granting more powers to the prime minister at position many predicted he would eventually feel himself little did he know he was digging his own hole. he made this changes to the
constitution is it time it was a dream that i never see the problem and these are the majority. but that's a little less flair. however this situation did not come out of nowhere prison torture tapes released in september he'd saakashvili the hardest thousands took to the streets as allegations emerged that he personally ordered the torture and filming of these atrocities the changing point in this election was the allegations of brutality in prisons and torture and the allegation behind that was of course that saakashvili and his prime minister merabishvili had ordered this abuse so if you have a situation where the new column entry majority wants to investigate abuse it could well produce a crisis full of his close associates so they could not only have lost the election but they could face serious legal complications the georgia dream bartz the leader and possibly the next prime minister but is anybody really has already made his.
clear. this man's ideology has established a crime of violence and torture it would be good if he submitted his resignation nationalising various procedures to force him to resign. it was not only the prison tape scandal which brought fortress of power down say experts corruption among elites daunting poverty and playing hardball with russia all contributed but for now georgia is welcoming and new era hoping for a fresh start georgia's history is rich with different sorts of bloody cold it dos and forceful change of governments in the outgoing president mikhail saakashvili came to power as a result of the revolution so this may well become the first days in this country's history of a peaceful transition of power. r.t. reporting from billy c.
